The Liable Driver in Your Accident May Have Been Distracted By Anything
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that 9 people die in the United States (and more than 1,000 suffer injuries) each day due to a distracted driver.
Data shared by the CDC lists three main types of distraction: visual, manual, and cognitive. The driver responsible for your injuries may have been distracted by any of—or all three of—these forms of distraction. We will work to prove the cause of your accident.
This type of distraction involves anything that takes a driver’s eyes off the road. Visual distraction can occur within the vehicle or outside of it. Digital billboards and checking a cell phone are just two examples of distractions that remove a driver’s focus from the road.
Manual distractions prevent a driver from keeping their hands from the wheel. Examples of this type of distraction include reaching for items or texting.
Thoughts and emotions that consume a driver’s mind can result in cognitive distraction. Driving while upset, crying, or worried may contribute to a serious car accident that injuries others. Reading an upsetting text message impairs a driver’s ability to maintain control of their vehicle.
A common thread among the three forms of distraction is texting. CDC identifies texting as an action that involves a driver taking any part of their attention away from the road.
The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety (FTS) discovered in a recent survey that most drivers realize texting while driving is a serious concern. However, in the same survey, many drivers admitted to engaging in the same behavior behind the wheel.
If a distracted driver is responsible for your injuries, they should pay your medical bills—not you. A Port Charlotte distracted driving accident lawyer can help you fight for justice.

Distracted Driving Kills
A dangerous driver does not have to text to drive in a distracted manner. Other forms of distraction include:
- Personal grooming
- Reaching for dropped items
Any form of distraction can change your life forever. When a distracted driver kills your loved one, their death may qualify you for a wrongful death lawsuit.
A personal injury lawyer from our team will work hard to settle your case out of court. We can represent you at trial if the insurance companies are not fair and refuse to settle, though.
A wrongful death lawsuit generally results in economic and noneconomic damages. The difference between the two are important for your case:
These types of damages are easy for jurors to understand, due to the fact the costs are specific to the service provided. Examples of economic damages are:
- Your loved one’s final medical expenses
- Funeral and burial costs for a loved one lost in the crash
Damages that are harder to quantify with a finite cost require a careful presentation to jurors. As personal injury lawyers, we understand how to communicate the value of the loss of your loved one when it comes to the following:
- Loss of companionship
- Mental anguish
If you lost a close loved one because of a distracted driver, holding such an individual accountable for the death and damages is possible with civil action.
Let the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine Help in Your Pursuit for Damages
From a teenager with passengers to a crying baby, distractions while driving are very real. How a driver responds to or engages with distractions can make the difference between life and death for other drivers, however.
A Port Charlotte distracted driving accident lawyer will not let insurance companies pressure you into accepting less than you deserve. Never let an insurance company persuade you to sign anything without legal representation.
The turmoil and changes a distracted driver brings to your life are not fair. Accepting an initial settlement offer may appear to you as the best way to move forward. But, the amount they offer you will most likely not cover your future medical costs.
